president bill clinton, part of what has made fema so effective is the ability to have the resources in the bank, to have the resources, to get those resources ahead of the storm. because part of the problem is once the storm hits and you're trying to move resources in then you're behind the 8 ball. part of ryan budget, frankly, if we believe that's the approach romney would take says, no, no, you have to come back to us after a storm hits and get the resources you need. that's inefficient and we know that's inefficient. >> of course, we'll get the conversation of the off sets. >> of course. >> that means we have to take -- >> middle class americans. as you've been pointing out, all of a sudden he's nice to first responders when he wasn't so hot on them when we had real labor issues, was he? >> not at all. karen finney, great to have you on "the ed show." thanks so much. remember to answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and on facebook. >>> coming up, a down and dirty ad from the romney campaign in florida because it's getting d
, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather re
will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a lot of surrogate traffic and part of that is because early voting is under way right now and goes on through tomorrow. and both sides are really trying to energize people and get them out to the polls during this week. >> brianna, i'm looking behind you. just quickly peek over the back of your shoulder to your left, air force one just came right into a perfect view for us. thank you very much. but i want to ask you, this was a campaign stop in green bay that was really supposed to happen tuesday, which the president cancelled because of the storm and emergency work that he needed to do. so what did they do? did they go on with the event as scheduled and then add this one, or have they just rejigged the schedule? >> reporter: they sort of adjusted it a little bit. i think it was an evening event was the idea on tuesday. but for instance, charles woodson, who, yes, did make that very generous $100,000 donation -- or announced it here to the red cross, he was going to be at the event tuesday, and he was at the event here
goes to the directly to the office of secretary of state hillary clinton. >> steve: goes directly to hillary clinton . this flyies in the face of the mem that the white house is pushing. we didn't have warning that there was trouble there. that simply is not true . on august 8th. ambassador stevens sent a cable that benghazi was a security vacume and on september 11th the ambassador was under fire and siege and growing problems with security and now the new cable shows there was a potential for a coordinated attack. clearly this is not the message that the white house wants to push. newt gingrich was on with shawn hanitet and he is disgusted by it >> the white house is playing games with us. who was in charge. who did the president say should take care of this? did they want to rescue the ambassador and people killed with him? why was nothing done for sevenhours? you now have 7 weeks of refusal to explain seven hours and i find it mystifying. >> gretchen: current politicians and senators and members of congress asking a lot of the questions . the white house is pushing a particula
and you met hillary clinton. when they had this service. >> that is, correct. at andrew's air force base when the bodies were flown in. >> sean: you said the president couldn't look you in the eye and it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. >> that's exactly right. >> sean: and so you felt he couldn't look you in the eye and that basically he felt no empathy and you said the same thing pretty much about hillary clinton? >> right. what happened was he came through there kind of after everyone else had been in the room circulating and he came over and shook my hand, you know, i wanted to do more than just shake his hand so i kind of put my arm around his shoulder to have just a little bit of physical warmth, not a major hug but just a small one and he kind of -- it wasn't in a powerful voice it was more of just a whiney little voice i'm sorry. i could tell my his voice he wasn't even sorry. it would be like a little kid that is told by the teacher to go apologize to johnny out on the play ground and when looked at me his face was pointed towards me but he couldn't look me in the eye. h
and new york's cuomo. >> greg: we can't forget that bill clinton today said, what did he say? speaking of storms, if you don't vote for if you vote for romney that's a bigger storm. bigger disaster than sandy. i would say that bill clinton is a threat to anyone named sandy. >> kimberly: okay, than say tute political note we move on. new reports that contradict the administration story about the libya terror attack. we have details about what the lawmakers were told in a briefing, just two days after the attack. we are closely watching hurricane sandy. we have the latest as thecoast e megastorm. stay with us. ♪ ♪ starting to turn around because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. ♪ ♪ >> dana: welcome back to "the five." fox's catherine herridge reporting today on september 13, two days after the libya attack, lawmakers on capitol hill were told during a briefing with t

of surrogates and i understand bill clinton will be picking up a number of campaign appearances on the campaign trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama can say, well, i'm president. and, you know, this takes priority over politics. and i think that will basically sit well with voters. >> let's talk about mitt romney. he decided to turn a campaign event in ohio into a relief effort. collecting food and collecting goods to send to the people who have been affected by superstorm sandy. good, bad, what? >> i think it was a very smart political move. again, you don't want to come off too overtly political. i think that was just the right measured response to the disaster. and i think if he went to -- you know, on a media tour of the disaster site that would seem too opportunistic, almost politically desperate. i think he made the right call there. >> the only thing is that reporters at the end of this event were shouting at him, asking him if he supported fema, if fema should disappear. governor romney didn't answer their questions. why do you suppose that was? >> because he knows t
are not out of the question. remember under bill clinton, i was proud to be his labor secretary, 22 million net new jobs were created over eight years. so 12 million -- >> do you remember the job growth, though? you were averaging over 4% job growth during that period. >> yes. and the economy is larger and more people. i'm not saying we're going to do it. i think the 12 million is very optimistic. it is possible with a recovery, with a strong recovery, policies specific policies, i don't think there's a magic bullet, i don't think either governor romney or the president has any particular secret up his sleeve that is going to generate a lot of new jobs suddenly. >> right. and it's a tough one because it becomes a wash. they both made the same promise. the issue is what kind of jobs they're going to be. that's been a criticism of president obama. he has made up for all the jobs that have been lost on his watch, but as often happens, the recovery has created jobs that are not as lucrative as the ones before. the president's plan now that he's unveiled focuses on manufacturing jobs. he says he
president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. vir
by the u.s. mission to the secretary of state hillary clinton on august 16th. it went to mrs. clinton's office. it stated americans in benghazi did not believe the consulate could be defended against a coordinated attack. of course on 9/11 there were coordinated terrorist attacks that killed ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans. it is clear the obama administration was warned and did nothing. that's a pretty big story and the press has ignored it saying over and over again his administration is investigating. here is a flash. the fox news investigative team has uncovered far more about libya than the obama administration has. which is kind of interesting, don't you think? there are just four days until we vote. libya will not be, will not be a major issue. the president will be able to ride it out. and he can thank his friends in the media for that. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction to the fox news poll and to the libyan situation joining us in washington radio talk show star and fox news analyst laura ingraham. take the polling first. wh
're going to continue to chat about this all morning. he writes by the end of president clinton's second term our economy created 23 million new jobs, incomes rose, poverty fell, deficits became the biggest surplus in history. and what his point in part of this op-ed is if you look to the last democrat who he says he's shaping himself in that, in that image, if you will, you know, he was successful in that kind of a strategy. >>> the first two years of president clinton's administration weren't terribly interesting. the economy didn't do very well. however, in november of 1994, when the republicans won the house and the senate, all of a sudden, the stock market started going up, job creation started going up, we got a cut in the capital gains tax, a cut in the capital gains tax, and all of clinton's spending programs were eliminated. all of the things he was going to spend money on. he was planning on having deficits $200 billion a year, if you look at his budget from '93 and '94. what changed was he lost control of congress and all of his spending plans were taken off the table. that's
thing to try to counteract bill clinton to some extent who's a super surrogate all by himself. mccain, rubio. >> who do they have? meatlo meatloaf. >> meatloaf, kid rock. some of that fanning out will be to pennsylvania and michigan with some pretty major surrogates, maybe not the candidates themselves. >> so the battle continues over which candidate, of course, in michigan and ohio, a bigger champion of the auto industry. a lifeblood of many ohio towns. with mitt romney's campaign running a radio ad, accusing president obama of allowing manufacturing jobs to be shipped overseas. the ad says under president obama, gm cut 15,000 jobs and planning to double the number of cars built in china. and the ad said chrysler also plans to start making jeeps in china. but a general motors spokesman told "the detroit free press," quote, we've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the u.s. and repatriating profits back into this country. okay. >> willie, what do you thin
? >> reporter: he is still off the campaign trail though president clinton filling in for hum in wisconsin which is very interesting state to look at the way the race is tightening up. the president will be back on campaign trail tomorrow. his big event is with governor chris christie in new jersey. governor christie had high praise for the president last couple days for the response to the storm. that will be an interesting image to watch. yesterday at the red cross president obama said he would make every effort to cut through the sort of red tape that the romney campaign says he tried to our aboutry america in. here's the president. >> we have a situation where that lasts for days on end and so my instructions to the federal agency has been, do not figure out why we can't do something. i want you to figure out how we do something. i want you to cut through red tape. i want you to cut through bureaucracy. there is no excuse for inaction at this point. >> reporter: as the campaign sets to resume full tomorrow, jim messina, president obama's campaign manager, has a video out today talking about
administration. good to have you with us. richard socarides is former senior adviser to president clinton. ben smith we're going to go ahead and introduce. he is stuck in traffic, as you know, the traffic is so awful in new york city. i mean, it takes such a long time to even get across town or downtown, because, of course, with the subways only now getting back into service in a limited way, a huge problem. ben, normally i would mock you for not getting to my show, but today i will not. we'll start with john berman. he has a look at some of the stories making news. >> meanwhile, flights have resumed at laguardia after a lot of disruption from sandy. look at these pictures. it's impressive they got it open today. new york city's other two major airports reopened yesterday morning. this doesn't mean everything is back to normal. all three airports are running at reduced schedules. >>> cnn ireporter george dupont shot these stunning images in connecticut. both were just piled on top of each other at a boatyard on bluff avenue, and right near homes, practically on top of homes nearby. he's lived
't be headed to virginia. it's affecting the president in some of his campaigning this week with bill clinton. do we know if anything else could be changing because of the storm? >> one of the big things you saw, the without -- president obama has decided to stay here in d.c. at the white house to monitor sandy. mitt romney has changed the schedule so he will be back up in ohio with paul ryan. but one of the things that's going to be interesting sellery voting actually started this weekend -- is early voting actually started this weekend. in florida, maryland, there were lines in d.c. there's been encouragement for voters to get out this weekend and too thedo their early votine hurricane sandy comes through and messes up everything. >> i saw pictures over the weekend from joe johns, polling places in virginia. looked to be very long lines. people trying to get in before the storm hits. let me ask you this -- oftentimes in politics, in october before the big election, people talk about an october surprise. might this be the october surprise, this go round? >> you know, this is certainly surpri
. that rally did go on but not with him. with former president bill clinton as the starring attraction instead. but president obama had to cancel this and the reason is on the bottom of your screen. it's hurricane sandy. cnn's dan lothian is at the white house. we just heard the president making a plan for this big public announcement at 12:45. anything other than updating where we stand and what people need to do, depending on where they live? >> reporter: we're still trying to get more details on that. but we expect it will simply be an update at 12:45 on what the president has lrnd coearned comt of this meeting going on right now. the president getting briefed from some of the senior members of his team including janet napolitano and craig fugate and john brennan. the follows some of the briefings the president has been getting over the weekend. he also went over to fema headquarters where he had a chance to get a firsthand glimpse of what the federal government was doing to stay on top of this hurricane. again, the president promising that the federal government will help states in any way
to the secretary of state, hillary clinton, asking about documents that indicate that people affiliated with the libyan government may have been involved in the attack. joiningous this breaking news, former new york city mayor, rudy guiliani. there is a likelihood that power is not going to be back on in new york until... some estimates, november 11 or beyond. there is no heat. there is no gas. people are dumpster diving for food. it was all over the drudge report. the president goes for a photo-op. he's gone. there is no help coming in here at all. it is four days into this. i mean, i really believe this is now -- this is a disaster out there. >> it is a disaster. particularly for the people in breezy point and rockaway and other parts of the area that have been disproportionately hit by t. there is a reason why we can't turn the power on, you know, within a day or two. that's because we are at the breaking point, in terms of our sources of power. we haven't rebuilt our infrastructure, the way we sh. we haven't built the transmission lines and modernized them or built a nuclear power p
benghazi and that they told the state department secretary clinton august 16 if there is a coordinated al-qaeda attack the consulate will be overrun. that is what we know before the attack. during the attack we know that 7-8 hours goes by and not one military person was able to help these poor people for over 7 hours on september 11. after the attack they blamed it on a video, a mob and riot that never existed. the president has been awol when it comes to benghazi. they have been denying and deceiving the public. >> greta: it is absolutely extraordinary because you said that he was going to get us answers. and i'm not suggesting -- >> yeah, right. >> greta: and i'm not suggesting that the fbi interrogation be made public but makes a lot more sense to get him in a time close to the event rather than waiting three years or three months or whatever. and it is -- i mean it is extraordinary that we would not have wanted to get in there quicker or even in the fbi or the fbi director i'm surprised he didn't hound the president. want to find out what happened in this murder, let's move fast now e
the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he's lavished on the president and if he doesn't, then he would bear the blame, according to mr. murdoch, for the next four years in barack obama gets in. what do you make of that? >> oh, i don't go that far at all. i think at the point at which chris christie was saying that it was all quite legitimate. i think president obama at the beginning of this did keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of
